to be their leader? guest: it is good to end on a loaded question. let me say first that john mccain, who was a great senator, and who was the original maverick and had an independent image, i think he had a very difficult time running into thousand eight following eight years of george w. bush. it was likely time for a democratic president to win so i think john mccain had a hard assignment. with respect to the question you asked, i would say that america elected an african-american, barack obama, and after one of the most intense and expensive and bitter campaigns of all time, reelected him. i would say that is a pretty strong statement of respect for him. some people have said to mate there will be a racial vote in this election. i think it is quite likely that the people who voted against barack obama would have voted against a democratic. host: have been talking with i read shapiro, the author of "the last great senate." thank you very much for being on the program today. guest: thank you for the opportunity to come in. host: the headline in this morning's paper says pot vote raises possibility
to national security, like senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham. however, will not necessarily heard about point the president say -- no way is this going to happen. was for indication that it is one area where, although there's a lot of gridlock here, both parties to agree on this one point, that this should not happen. host: next caller, bob on our line for republicans, new jersey. caller: i have two comments. one is, in this a good idea to go over the fiscal cliff. and i am wondering if the tax cuts expire, does that mean that the 47% better not paying taxes will start paying taxes? if that is the case, let us go for it. it is time people get into the game, even if it is $5 a year. something. i will take your comments off air. host: my question was going to become a what does it mean for him? that goes to the question of how much could this mean not just for everyone, but how much it means on a personal level. we will ask other callers there. what to do think about his proposal that we drive off the cliff? caller: i think for a while it seems like that now have been more of a poss
, even personal. libya has become a battle between president obama and republican senator john mccain who insisted the administration knew quickly that al qaeda had attacked. >> for the president for two weeks afterwards to deny that that was the case is either cover-up for it is in confidence. >> un embassador susan rice denied it, infuriated republicans. lawmakers were briefed on libya. the democrat said theat u.s. intelligence did give her the incorrect intelligence. >> this is something involved -- involving into something militant. >> there had been earlier attacks. the warning from chris stevens the day he died. house republicans hammered the administration reaction. >> the people who stayed here in washington continued to deny additional security and they continue to do away with security that was already there. >> democrats pushed back. >> to lay this at the doorstep of the president or secretary of state or the u.n. ambassador, you will find us ready and willing to resist to the teeth. >> a fight over tragedy that could be calmed by david benghazi to hawent to investigate and wil
. it went from two to 3%, went up dramatically. john mccain got 35 percent. mitt romney, 27. that is very troubling for republicans. lou: let's talk about the democrat, happier story. the idea that this president performed better, did not do quite as well. he was down from 2008 with young people, but still enough to win. what are your thoughts about the way it went down? >> i was so surprised about the rapidity with which the race was called. but i voted on friday. it took me about two and a half hours to vote, which was shocking. i had no idea about that so many people were going to be in the system trying to vote. early voting was an indication to me the something else was going on. if i talk to these people, i heard how they were just really angry. the south side of chicago. primarily african-american, at least in that section, and they personalize a lot of the attacks lou: matt. >> not just angry. hurt. lou: i have to go to break. >> legitimacy as an american was questioned. lou:, on. we're coming back in just a minute. we will find out what's going on were coming right back. those su
mccain and health care summit. >> let me just make this pont, john. because we're not campaigning anymore. the election is over. >> the president has made clear mccain and his republican colleagues have simply moved too far to the right to work out any deals. the republican view is the president's idea of bipaisanship is to force them to accept sharp tax increases. there are also skeptical mr. obama is willing to step up with real speding cuts. >> i was interested in his remarks was night about saying that the best is yet to come. well, we would have liked to have seen some of that in the first four years. but maybe he really is serious this time. >> another major stumbling block may be the investigation over the terror attack in benghazi. mccain and republican lindsay gramm have been pressing for answers and accused the white house's stonewalling. fox has learned the house intelligence committee will hold a closed hearing of benghi. the demonstration pledging cooperation and sending of witnesses like cia director david patraeus. meanwhile, the fiscal cliff check -- vice-ppesident biden t
response? >> i never have seen him react like that where he went after lindsey graham and john mccain who was his opponent four years ago. you know, he said if you have a problem, come after me. and lindsey graham and john mccain did. i think he was right and justified. susan rice is a native washingtonian, went to national cathedral school here. people know her. i think he was absolutely right. she had nothing to do with benghazi but the criticism should have been more at hillary clinton who that's her department, the state department and she was just repeating what was given to her and she was the fall person n this case, i think that was justified. whether or not, because of the controversy, you know, one senator can put a hold on the nomination and they've said that they would. i would be surprised now, just because of the controversy, not because of her qualifications whether he wants a confirmation donnie brook over susan rice or somebody else who very much wants the job, john kerry, who is responsible for obama's year. he picked him to be the keynote speaker in 2004. >> reporter: t
on september 11. the senator john mccain was lashing out today at the president over the un ambassador's claims that the attack was not pre-planned. >> we believe whoever it is, they must be held responsible, i say to the president of the united states. most importantly the president of the united states, who is commander in chief. >> the former cia director david petraeus will be testifying tomorrow. and when petraeus gets up there to testify, it will be his first public appearance since resigning after his affair with the biographer paw la broadwell. the fbi uncovered that affair while investigating e-mails that broadwell had sent to tampa social lite jill kelley. they said that he just doesn't believe anybody else is involved in this scandal. >> and we want to know what you think. how much do you care about this petraeus scandal? are you completely rivetted, getting slightly bored, or c, wish we would move on already? i am always a, rivetted and never bored with your e-mails. the address here is mailbag@wusa9.com. >>> well president obama and the congressional leaders are slated to sit down
was just giving her best answer based on the intelligence she had been provided. senator john mccain is even trying to block -- threatening to block rice from becoming secretary of state if the president chooses her to succeed hillary clinton. >>> quickly approaching fiscal cliff is already giving investors on wall street a scare. dow closed down 185 points yesterday, third triple digit loss in a week. nasdaq is down 10% from september. the fear of grid lock on capitol hill is driving the tailspain. president obama says there is room for agreement. >> as i've said before, i'm open to compromise and i'm open to new ideas. and i've been encouraged to hear republican after republican agree on the need for more revenue from the wealthiest americans as part of our a arithmetic if we're serious about reducing the deficit. >> the president did say he would not accept continued tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% of americans. >>> mitt romney is offering a frank analysis of why he lost the election to president obama. he said gifts offered by the president to minority voters pushed hispanics, bla
that it was a coordinated attack. senator john mccain is trying to block her if she is chosen to succeed hillary clinton. >>> benghazi hearings won't be the only major discussion on capitol hill. they will learn more about the fbi's investigation that led to david petraeus's resignation. robert mueller and shawn joyce will meet for a second straight day. paula broadwell september e-mail toss several high-ranking military officers in an attempt to undermine tampa socialite's reputation. she is friends with petraeus and it cost both some privileges. the military suspended the u.s. army security clearance and kelley's air force base pass. >>> the edge of the fiscal cliff is still a month and a half away but it is already spooking investigators on wall street. the dow posted its third triple digit loss in more than a week closing down 185 points. both it and the s&p 500 ended at the lowest levels since the summer. the nasdaq is down 10% from just september. investors say the fear of grid lock on capitol hill is driving this tailspin. president obama, though, says there is room for agreement. >>> as i've sai
votes are clustered in those big metropolitan areas. john mccain in 2008, excuse me, barack obama in 2008 won the 28 congressional districts with 80% of the vote or more and john mccain ten by that margin. that gives democrats a lot of votes in the big states, but it also means that there's not that many democrats in the chase and districts. this time obama carried the same number of states with that percentage and romney may have gotten that percentage in one or two districts in utah. maybe it's time for political scientists and abundance to rule out another rule about locks, who has a lot on which part of the government before that rule becomes obsolete. thank you. >> thank you. now tell us about the republican party. >> i think the temptation for the republicans is in any case with going through the stages of grief, first its bid to be engaged in denial and that is what you saw with the "the washington times" piece that was read today. it's understandable. it's the human response, but it would be very smart for the republicans to get further along in those stages and not stay i
. senator john mccain will be with us today. we'll ask him about the petraeus sex scandal, the benghazi hearings and the possibility of susan rice becoming the next secretary of state. a lot of republicans want to hit the reset button. we'll hear from a group of romney supporters in virginia about his loss, the president and the future of the republican party. those stories and more when we see you at 7:00. mike and andrea, see you soon. >> have a good day, gayle. see you at the top of the hour. >>> a former chief psychiatrist at the f.b.i. is fighting the d.c. government's ban against him. they want alen salerian to stop writing prescriptions for powerful pain medications. >> he makes an appeal today to the d.c. health department. surae chinn is live with more. good morning, surae. >> reporter: good morning you to, andrea and mike. yeah, the doctor hasn't been able to prescribe or help his patients since april. that's when he was stripped of his ability to prescribe the class two narcotics since april as i mentioned, ever since a man he said was a former employee who broke into his off
the republican party from behind. when you support comprehensive immigration reform like john mccain did but then refuse to do it when president obama is in the white house, when you have the nominee of the party, mitt romney, saying people should self deport. so their house and go back to mexico. you cannot win latino votes when you make war against them . what againstin california has happen nationwide. -- what has happened in california happened nationwide. i am not sure how much credit arthur davis has. i was disappointed when he left the party and supported mitt romney. i did not buy his reasons for doing so. i would disagree with him on this. i do not think republicans should write off the african- american party at all. they are talking about jobs, improving the economy. if they are willing to save medicare and social security are going to stay, they can get african-american votes. to write them off as arthur davis suggested i think would be a colossal mistake. host: we will get to your calls in just a moment. you can also send us a comment on facebook or twitter. what surprised y
at this. guest: that is one to watch. john mccain was very critical of the citizens in that this case, and he was working with democrats in this congress, and it was postponed with the election. hearing more from republicans, even the head of the finance committee, they're not fans of the democrat's fix, but there could be some movement in the next congress. whether it succeeds we will see. host: the democratic fixed is the disclosure act? guest: yes. guest: i have for democrats concerned about what karl rove was doing, and what koch brothers were doing, but democrats did pretty well when it comes to this alternative funding. it was very powerful at the end and made a difference. we now have a system where both parties do pretty well. of all of the tweets the one that made me laugh was david chiefd, the president's campaign officer, who said there would be a lot of billionaires' at their refund window. host: ray, seneca falls, new york. republican caller. caller: i have an interesting theory. let's make term limits for congress and the senate, then we will get people interested in hel
, in particular, senator john mccain, who's been going after her, because of the narrative that she told shortly after those benghazi attacks. senator mccain saying that he just wants to get all the facts, suggesting that the white house has not been transparent. the president says anyone who's attacking her is simply, quote, outrageous. >> dan lothian for us this morning. thank you, dan. in just a moment, we'll get some more reaction from the maryland congressman, chris van hollen. that's straight ahead. first, john berman has a look at other news this morning. >>> we now know the identity of the fbi agent who helped start the investigation that eventually led david petraeus to resign. he's veteran investigator, frederic humphreys ii. and others say that paula broadwell, her security clearance is now suspended. also, petraeus will testify about the libya consulate attack after all, before a closed hearing of the house intelligence committee. that will happen tomorrow. >>> bp has reportedly agreed to pay an unprecedented fine and admit to criminal misconduct in connection with the 2010 deepwater
on september 11th. that attack left four americans dead including ambassador chris tvens. senator john mccain and other republicans are now calling for a watergate still select committee. >> ambassador chris stevens. >> there is no credibility among methamphetamine of us concerning the administration and the numerous controversies and contradictions that have been involved in their handling of this issue. >> reporter: gop leads are say they would block any attempt to confirm susan rice as the new secretary of state if she is nominated. >> if senator mccain and senator graham want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received is outrageous. >> reporter: it was later discovered the killings were a coordinated terrorist attack. in washington, steve centanni, fox news. fox news. >>> the washington wizards fell to the dallas mavericks last night dropping to 0-7 on the season. that is just one loss short of franchise worst start they had
states, republicans carried one. he basically one what john mccain won, plus indiana, which nobody considers a swing state, plus north carolina. you go one out of 11, then you have the senate tossup. republicans lost nine out of 10. i think senator cornyn and all the folks -- one of the more talented campaign committees i have ever seen. two cycles in a row, they have had the worst loss. when your party nominate people that are so exotic that they have little or no chance of winning general elections, that ought to be very winnable, that is not something campaign committee can do anything about. you have party bosses from washington dictating who are candidates are going to be, or do you allow yourself the diversity of a bunch of wackos? >> a whole bunch of these republican governors were elected in 2010, which was against barack obama, the stimulus, the takeovers. no matter how partisan the state, they will send the opposite party to the state mansion, but they will not send them to d.c. even bob ehrlich one in maryland, and democrats get elected governor -- sullivan in wyoming, s
will be against the hawks i think on a number of occasions. we did a story recently about him and we had john mccain talk about how much -- how much he respected and although they did not always see eye to eye. but i think the foreign relations panel in both chambers, sense, i guess, the 1960's, just as not had as much as an impact on what the president does as it used to. if kerry becomes the secretary of state, i guess you end up taking what he was hoping to do -- and at the administration level. but it reiterates what i am saying, which is you can't do much until you are in the administration about these kinds of things. >> i think you made a good point. if i could go back to bob corker also. he is kind of this fascinating character to me. in some ways he is almost non partisan and the way he deals with a lot of people. it may be due to his background as mayor of chattanooga. instead of going to the republican national convention in tampa over the summer, he went to the middle east. some people will use these as publicity stunts -- look at me, i am substantive while others are getting drun
that kind of softness. who really in this country is pushing for extending it? lindsey graham, john mccain and the departing joe lieberman. i don't know of any other voices in the national political scene who are saying we can't leave. we have to do as long as it takes and stay there forever. there's no public support for it. >> because of this scandal, i just -- i mean, one of the things that you hear from veterans groups, that people outside the military i don't think seem all that comfortable talking about is the personal toll of these long deployments over multiple years on people's personal lives. young veterans bemoan the rate of divorce among veterans. how difficult it is to sustain a family and relationships. i don't know why we think it's easier for top commanders than your average infantry man trying to hold his family together. is this potentially -- we tend to defer to the military's own judgment on these things. we ask the commanders on the ground for their own opinion, but is this not another occasion for civilians to say, this is done in our name. the military isn't fighting
. in a letter to senator john mccain today, panetta addresses the claim that the military could have dispatched fighter jets to stop the attack. secretary panetta says they did not have aircraft near libya at the time. four americans were killed, including ambassador chris stevens. panetta made the statements ahead of next week's congressional hearings about the attack. >>> d.c. police are looking for the man who fired shots near the white house. all started with a robbery early this morning and ended with the victims chasing the suspects. jackie benson at the scene now near lafayette park with more on this. jackie? >> well, jim, it ended when the victims drove in to lafayette park with a vehicle, with a fresh bullet hole in the windshield is bound to get the attention of law enforcement. one of the victims believes the robber suspected he'd be carrying a large amount of cash. >> maybe i had money, but i didn't. >> reporter: the bullet hole in the windshield of the porsche cayenne shows how close the victims came to serious harm. they ask that we not identify them. >> i'm out of it. >> reporter
graham and john mccain for their comments saying they would block the u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice if she is nominated for secretary of state. >> if senator mccain or senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> summer mccain will do whatever it takes to block the nomination. >>> the president also spoke about the fiscal cliff in his news conference. >> jessica doyle is back and this your money report, the latest on the negotiations and high stakes that families will face if we fall off this cliff. >> president obama said he is willing to work with republicans to prevent the automatic spending cuts and tax hikes from taking effect at the start of the new year, but he's standing by his commitment to raise taxes for those making more than $250,000. that's something republican l

the single best word for it this is no the a campaign like you had four years ago with john mccain staffers could largely see the writing on the wall. most of the people from the mid-level folks on down especially looked up at the top echelon, looked at mitt romney who was projecting complete confidence, he and i sat as close as you and i are on the last day and he said we will win this thing and the people believed it. to have the bottom fall out by 10:00 or 11:00 at night we saw a lot of devastated people. >> how much longer does romney get secret service? like the things that go along with the presidential campaign, how soon does that wither away? >> the secret service is all but done at this point. he still had the agents overnight. some of the agents still around in boston the next day. their basic prerogative is to make sure protesters aren't going to overrun his house and the baseline level of security is there. and with the romney family, largely spread out across the country, no young kids in boston their work is all but done at this point. back to a private citizen by today. >> wh
